Well, I am not picking only books published in 2013, because I have read so many different ones this year and it’s my first year as a blogger, so I’m including all the books I’ve read this year. From next year on, as you already know I’m am doing a Book of the Month section and at the end of the year I will pick my faves out of these 12. So here are my favorites for this year and I have to tell you it was a really hard decision, because I read so many great ones. Enjoy :)

2. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
3. Just for Christmas by Scarlett Bailey
4. Sleigh Bells in the Snow by Sarah Morgan
5. The Life List by Lori Nelson Spielman
6.  The Johnny series by Paige Toon
7. It’s Raining Men by Milly Johnson
8. Calling Mrs Christmas by Carole Matthews
9. Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher
10. The First Last Kiss by Ali Harris

Chasing Daisy by Paige Toon

I just love Paige’s books so much. This one is probably my favourite one. I clicked with Daisy instantly, partly because she swears in Italian and she is so awesome. Then there are Will and Luis, both incredible in their own way. I’m so glad Daisy found her happiness. It was great to read her story, going through good and also sad times. Such an emotional and addicting book, couldn’t put it down.

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

Such a heart-breaking, beautiful and emotional story. It was great to see how Louisa managed to get closer to Will and how he was different when she was around. I had to cry non stop through some of the pages and this untypical story is written beautifully and touches every heart.

 Just for Christmas by Scarlett Bailey

Amazing story, great characters and some deep meanings. You see two people meet, both of them with a past and a background they don’t want to share and they get closer and closer. Scarlett has a vivid way to describe the story and I got hooked instantly.

Sleigh Bells in the Snow by Sarah Morgan

A beautiful story to dive into immediately, which never makes you want to leave again. Jackson O’Neil the sexy and perfect man, who manages to break Kayla’s shell. Their chemistry is undeniable. Can’t wait to read more of the O’Neil brothers and I’m so happy Jackson and Kayla found their happy end.

     The Life List by Lori Nelson Spielman

Completing a list to get your inheritance? No way, that’s going to work. The lovely Brett is trying to do that and it’s great to see her being a teacher and finding the love of her life. It takes her quiet a while, especially for the last one, but I really thinks she ends up with the right guy. What a lovely and wonderful debut novel.

Johnny Be Good, Baby Be Mine and Johnny's Girl by Paige Toon
The story of Johnny and Meg is a total rollercoaster with ups and downs and so much drama. Loved them from the start and it was great to finally see them happy at the end of Baby Be Mine. In Johnny’s Girl I adored their relationship so much and I loved their scenes. Paige is a great and talented writer and made Johnny and Meg such alive characters. 

 It’s Raining Men by Milly Johnson

Not just a great romantic read, it’s also a story with a deeper and greater meaning. The three friends May, Lara and Clare have such a great friendship and it’s so interesting what each one experiences in this small village, where everything is weird: the people and the weather...

Calling Mrs Christmas by Carole Matthews

In this case the quote “Reading is dreaming with open eyes” totally describes how I felt through out the story. I could imagine this life and world so easily and I am so glad Carole introduced us to the lovely Lapland. This story is really fascinating, vivid and full of extraordinary moments. LOVED IT!

Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher

Wonderful debut novel. I fell in love with this story around Billy and Sophie. A lot of ups and downs written in a magnificent way. The emotions came right through to me.

The First Last Kiss by Ali Harris

Such an emotional, moving and heart-breaking story. I loved Molly’s and Ryan’s story so much and it shows how much every single kiss means. It’s a memory for life, we shouldn’t forget that. Ali’s writing is beautiful and very emotional.

That was it for this year my lovely friends. I am so glad I got to know you all in this year, I found some true friends and enjoyed every minute of blogging. Have a nice NYE and a happy 2014. See you next year :)
